Your Weekly Horoscope: October 20 to 26, 2019
As the chaos unleashed during the Aries full moon finally lulls this week, it’s time to catch our breath and appreciate all that has changed for the better. On the 23rd, the sun enters Scorpio (Happy birthday to our Scorpio babes!). No longer concerned with being the best dressed at the function, we’re ready to pull on our slippers and mull some wine for intimate gatherings at home. Who’s on the guest list for the coziest parties of the year?
(Horoscopes follow for each sign. If you know your rising sign, reading for that will provide further insight.)
It’s finally your season. Happy birthday, Scorpio! And as you start receiving the attention of a birthday queen, you realize that some things can no longer be left unsaid. It’s time to compose that biting text message or make that nerve-wracking phone call. It’s a moment to break it off or make amends. On the 21st, you’re hit with a dreamy wave of creativity and channel your passion into a poem. However it is you express yourself, let your voice be heard!
It might seem futile to make your desk at work into anything but a pitstop. But with a slower inbox or your boss on vacation this week, take the time to personalize your office space. Splurge on classic snacks and fancy hand lotions to keep in your drawer. Get the pens you really want. Cut some fresh lavender and put it in a ceramic vase. By the 25th, you’re so proud of the upgrade that you come in early to find peace at your desk.
Though you love to take charge of every situation, this week, if you’re feeling rundown, it’s OK to get by with a little help from your friends. On the 21st, blow off a networking event or first date you’ve been dreading and accept the invitation to a dinner or wine night instead. Taking home the laughs and the advice from your favorite ladies brightens not just your day but your outlook (and with a solid moisturizer recommendation, it also brightens your skin!).
This week, it’s time to be a boss. Thankfully, you aren’t dealing with a stressful deadline or a crisis with a client. Instead, now’s the time to embrace your authority when things are blessedly calm. Take a moment to check in with your coworkers and plan ahead. On the 25th, an announcement that you’re moving office spaces before the end of the month comes as a surprise but doesn’t interrupt your groove. Finally! You can keep your cool when facing what’s truly out of your control.
Scorpio season has you hungry for knowledge. Avoid getting too lost in an internet research void, though, because there is already so much wisdom in your community. Your shy colleague—actually an expert in mushroom foraging—is hosting a talk at the local food co-op. Attending a fundraising concert hosted by your college BFF might introduce you to a new genre of music. Follow your gut—especially on the 21st—and go somewhere fascinating with a friend. Stumble upon your next passion.
Much to your delight, extra stress at work has come with a heftier paycheck. But, are you handling that extra cash with care? On the 21st, fantasize about your next investment—whether that’s financing a more fuel-efficient car, purchasing a tiny home in the woods or using the avalanche method to pay off your husband’s student debt. After your daydream sesh, schedule a meeting in the next few weeks with an accountant or financial planner. Money talk can be a thrill if you’re prepared.
Though you’re proud of being both loyal and stubborn––lately, you’ve been hesitant to commit. But as Scorpio season dawns, lighting up your house of joint ventures, you can’t resist the urge to feel complete. Whether it’s a new boyfriend or a new freelance contract, be sure what you’re letting in is expanding your world. On the 21st, a friend enchants you with her own romantic story. Take inspiration from her bliss.
If your fitness routine has been in a rut, now’s the time to recalibrate. Maybe it’s the moment to ditch all those high intensity workouts and do something less sweaty like barre. Or perhaps quitting the gym to take daily runs with your puppy is what brings you joy. Get your heart pumping again! On the 25th, share how it’s going with some trusted friends so they can keep you accountable. Attention always leads to transformation.
You and your partner have been through a lot this year. And though you know he has your back in the stormiest of weather, when was the last time y’all had any fun? On the 21st, plan a date that gives you that rush of excitement you felt when you first met. Cozy up with each other in the corner of a dark bar, try out a new restaurant or just stay at home cuddling on the couch. You can weather any storm with the comfort of each other.
Whether you’re getting a head start on booking your flights to visit family for the holidays or making plans for a big move or renovation, there’s lots of close-to-home (and close-to-heart) little to-do tasks up in the air this week. Even if you’re on top of all the organizing, make sure everyone else is sticking to their financial commitments. Send that Venmo request or reminder about the security deposit on the 21st. Keep the frustration out of the house.
When your sister visits this week, make sure you show her all of your special spots. Skip the Michelin restaurant and go to your beloved vegan diner. Instead of a crowded afternoon at the museum, check out the paintings at a DIY gallery. Sip a latte from your favorite barista and introduce her to your little corner of the world. On the 21st, as you circulate around town, a local shop owner brings up an intriguing partnership opportunity. Embrace the chance to get involved.
You know what your goals are, especially in terms of personal growth. But in order to manifest any of them, you need more cash. As Scorpio season begins and your focus shifts almost entirely to your bank account, start stashing away money toward these goals. It’s a fund for your foundation. On the 21st, an alluring possibility to get rich quick presents itself. Don’t take it if the path leads to burnout, though. Your number one value should be nourishing your soul.
